Lipoabdominoplasty, the combination of abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction (liposculpture) for body contouring was pioneered by Brazilian plastic surgeons. It addresses problems in configuration of the muscles of the abdominal wall, excess fat and skin in the entire central torso aesthetic unit. It is advantageous to perform all of these procedures in the same session for dramatic improvements. Flatness of the abdomen, deepened waistline and some contouring of the upper buttocks are achieved at the same time. We have performed a significant number of these procedures and currently have no evidence from our own case series that the complication rates in carefully selected clients or their recovery time differs much from simple abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) without concomitant liposuction.
